we learned about the game never give up. rick astley. >> like the shirt, like the jersey right there. >> exactly. sdp. we got a lot going on on capitol hill right now. let's take a look at the senate right now. democrats in the middle of a 24-hour push to stop betsy devos from becoming education secretary. that vote likely to come later today. >> overnight president trump blasting the press and pushing for his travel ban. the stakes for the white house very high today. a federal court hearing on the ban is set to begin later today so let's go right to abc's senior white house correspondent cecilia vega. good morning, cecilia. >> reporter: robin, good morning to you. the white house is preparing for a legal showdown. that happens today. people here say that this ban needs to be reinstated because the nation's security is at risk. the president himself says the courts must act fast. president trump's controversial immigration crackdown takes center stage in a federal courtroom today. both sides given 30 minutes to make their case on that executive order restricting travel for refugees and citizens
of seven muslim-majority countries. the president defending that ban. >> people that love us and want to love our country and will end up loving our country are allowed in. not people that want to destroy us and destroy our country. >> reporter: but while lawyers for the justice department told the ninth circuit court of appeals the ban is a lawful exercise of the president's authority, nearly 100 top tech companies to attorneys general from 15 states and the district of columbia all joining the legal fight opposing the president. but this morning, another controversy brewing. this claim made in front of u.s. central command troops that the media is covering up terror attacks. >> you've seen what happened in paris and nice, all over europe it's happening. it's gotten to a point where it's not even being reported and in many cases the very, very dishonest press doesn't want to report it. they have their reasons and you
understand that. >> reporter: on air force one press secretary sean spicer pressed for evidence. >> we'll provide a list later. there's a lot of instances that have occurred where i don't think they've gotten the coverage it deserves. >> reporter: released overnight that list, 78 terror attacks the white house says were underreported. among them cases like a 2014 attack in abu dhabi. an american teacher stabbed to death but also that shooting in san bernardino that left 14 people dead. the pulse nightclub attack in orlando and that christmas market attack in germany, all high-profile cases covered by just about every major news outlet. and here is that list, a full six pages, many of these attacks covered heavily by the media. as for that ruling, it could come any time after these oral arguments wrap this afternoon. robin and george. >> cecilia, thanks. let's get more on this now from our chief global affairs anchor martha raddatz, chief legal
analyst dan abrams. we got the list. it's kind of nonsense. there's dozens of attacks that were covered extensively by the press. others that aren't a terror attack or experts have said it's not a terror attack. even more chilling, the president delivering this in front of the military. >> in front of the military which is supposed to be nonpolitical but he gave a sort of stump speech in front of the military. and think about it, george, the press is embedded with the military and told their story again and again and one of the great ironies to me here when i hear president trump talk about the press and we're not covering this, he also talks about isis beheading people. james foley was the first person beheaded. he was a journalist. >> you see a pattern here. the judge rules against the president. he's a so-called judge. polls are bad. they're fake. they're fake news. clearly an effort here to delegitimize those who might be a check on the president. >> it almost seems like the strategy, don't believe those people no matter what they say,
and this time he's not only saying don't believe them, he's telling us how to do our job. >> in that o'reilly interview we saw another instance last night of the president seeming to take the running line on what's going on in ukraine suggesting that maybe putin is not behind the separatists who are moving into eastern ukraine. >> some more extraordinary comments. he really hasn't said anything bad about russia or about putin in any great degree. he keeps, in a way, defending them. so, that is something we have to watch. to me they're trying to i say renovate foreign policy. they've taken this beautiful historical house and they want to take it down to the studs. they're doing everything over. >> okay, martha raddatz. >> and also continuing to be a headline, of course, is the travel ban and the ninth circuit court of appeals. we're going to have that today. it could be a little confusing, tell us what's at stake. >> so, all we're talking about for now is this temporary restraining order. this temporary halt on implementing the ban. but as we've talked about before, that doesn't mean this isn't really important and here's why. because right now a federal district court judge has said
i'm not letting the administration implement this. ninth circuit court of appeals the next court up, is now going to assess that ruling. some will say, so what, they'll end up in the supreme court. maybe, but maybe not. the bottom line is if the ninth circuit agrees with the district court judge and says, the administration cannot move forward with this, the u.s. supreme court very well may say at least for now we're not going to hear this. we're not going to hear the question about should the temporary restraining order be in place. if that happens, that means that the administration cannot move forward with the order. at least for now. and that's a big delay for them and a big setback. >> so a lot on the line. >> absolutely. >> you believe also that the president's tweets could have an impact on the case. >> you know, one of the legal questions is what was the intent of the order? and when you look at the president's tweets, he states what the intent of the order is. do i think it will be dispositive what he said in
those tweets, no. do i think it's going to be helpful to trump, absolutely not. >> all right, dan, thank you. let's move on now to that showdown on capitol hill. democrats have kept the senate open all through the night in their bid to block president trump's pick for education secretary, betsy devos. our congressional correspondent mary bruce is there. i want to get to that vote on devos coming later today but there's also breaking news about trump's pick for labor secretary. he admitted to employing an undocumented immigrant. >> reporter: yeah, george, this is the kind of thing that's derailed nominees in the past. andrew puzner, trump's pick for labor secretary, admitting he employed an undocumented worker for years. now, he says he immediately ended his housekeeper's employment when he learned she was not permitted to work in the u.s. and says he's paid all those necessary back taxes. but puzder is already under fire for criticizing worker protections and his confirmation hearing has been rescheduled several times. perhaps a sign his nomination could be in trouble. >> democrats trying to hard to stop betsy devos, but that vote is coming later today. she's likely to get through?
>> reporter: yeah. this is a 24-hour marathon hail mary. democrats making a last-ditch attempt to try and block betsy devos. they've been here on the senate floor talking all night long, voicing their concerns about her lack of experience. they're hoping to convince just one more republican to oppose her. that's all it would take to sink her confirmation. but this morning it does not seem to be working. devos still headed for confirmation. >> if they don't find that other republican, then the vice president is going to be called in. this is something that's never happened before. >> reporter: this is something we have never seen before. the vice president, mike pence, is likely headed here to the capitol later today to use his tie-breaking power to push devos over the finish line. the first time a vice president has used that power to confirm a cabinet nominee. >> okay, mary bruce, thanks very much. george, president trump is also facing backlash in the uk for recent policy decisions. and now a call to keep him from addressing parliament on an upcoming state visit. our chief foreign correspondent terry moran is in london with much more.
good morning, terry. >> reporter: good morning, robin. high political drama here at the palace of westminster, the home of the british parliament. shows just how controversial president trump is here in this country. one of america's closest allies. so this is what happened. the speaker of the house of commons, john bercow, supposed to be strictly nonpartisan, stood up from his chair at the head of the house and he declared that he personally would block any invitation for president trump to come to westminster hall here and give a speech to the british parliament. >> i would not wish to issue an invitation to president trump to speak in the royal gallery. our opposition to racism and to sexism and our support for equality before the law and an independent judiciary are hugely important considerations in the house of commons.
>> reporter: that's just astonishing. you got to understand, speakers here aren't supposed to do that. they're the guys who yell order, order and rule on the motions in the house. people are saying that 800 years of this parliament, no speaker has ever done anything quite like that. >> so, terry, what has been the reaction of everybody over there? >> reporter: well, the reaction ranges from patriotic pride, he's getting cheers from people who say he's standing up for british values, to fury, people really angry at him and say he's gone way out of his lane and showboating and may be damaging the relationship, the crucial alliance between britain and the u.s. it just shows, robin, that right across europe, president trump is really stirring a lot of controversy. >> that is apparent. all right, terry, thanks so much. michael. >> all right, thank you, robin. now to breaking news about the flu which is so widespread some hospitals are reportedly running out of beds. and dr. besser is here to talk about this with me. the flu season has been deadly this year. >> yeah. >> what areas have been the hardest hit? >> it's many regions of the
country. take a look at this map. if you look here in the northeast high levels of flu, down in the south and in the midwest, but even out in california which isn't letting up as much they're saying that some hospitals are running out of beds. >> but what makes this strain so dangerous from strains in the past? >> so each year there are different flu strains that go around. the one this year is called h3n2 and whenever it is an h3n2 year it tends to be much severe. the cdc has received 15 reports of deaths in children so far, but we have another six to eight weeks of flu coming and i expect the number of deaths to go up so it's not too late to get that vaccine. >> we still have another six to eight weeks. we still have time to go. it's not too late. still time to get the shot. >> definitely. it can take a couple of weeks to be fully active in your body but i would recommend if you haven't gotten it or your kids haven't gotten it, go ahead and get it. >> all right, thank you, doc. >> george, back to you. >> thank you, michael. we move on to that wild weather slamming the center of the country, 23 states under winter weather alerts. ginger is tracking it. >> we are tracking that southern
part of the storm where the lightning, you can see images there, severe storms blowing through parts of arkansas and tennessee this morning. damaging wind, the main threat this morning, and this threat is going to go through the late morning and early afternoon. so it's already happening now as we see on the map. lots of lightning strikes across the midsouth and the severe threat stretches from parts of cincinnati, southern ohio right down through a tornado threat in parts of mississippi and alabama today. this before the northeast does a -- to a really cold whiplash, so close to 60 in new york city on wednesday. by thursday, 30 with snow, robin. >> oh, my gosh, stay tuned, right ginger? >> you got to pay attention of the you don't want to wake up and say, wait a minute. >> exactly. thank you, ginger. now to an urgent manhunt in florida for two suspects on the run who may be linked to three murders across the south. the pair is considered armed and dangerous. abc's linsey davis is here with new details on that. good morning, linsey. >> reporter: good morning, robin. police say they do not believe that monday's attack will be the last. residents in several communities
in the florida panhandle are now on high alert. police are doubling the number of officers on the street in a desperate attempt to catch the suspects. this morning, authorities in florida are escalating the search for this dangerous duo, william boyette and mary craig rice, after an alleged crime spree spanning two states that left three women dead and one critically injured. >> what we are experiencing is a running nightmare, quite honestly. >> reporter: the alleged crime spree began last tuesday when 30-year-old alicia greer and 39-year-old jacqueline jeanette moore were found murdered in a hotel in milton, florida. greer, a mother of three was in an abusive relationship with boyette according to her father. >> he choked her down to the ground and kicked her in the face. >> reporter: but authorities say none of the other victims had any connection to boyette. >> every once in a while we have an individual like this that, quite honestly, it's hard to get inside their head. >> reporter: the pair's next attack friday morning in lillian, alabama, where authorities say they murdered 52-year-old peggy broz in her
front yard and then fled in her car. their latest attack, kaley crocker in pensacola was left in critical condition, her 2-year-old son was uninjured. authorities searching for the suspects say they may be hiding out in the woods and that rice has dyed her hair orange to avoid detection. >> we know that boyette and rice have been in that wooded area. >> reporter: police say boyette is a heavy user of the synthetic drug spice and that he has reportedly said to many people that he will not be taken alive. michael. >> thank you, linsey. as we told you earlier the super bowl champion new england patriots, they're back in boston after their big come from behind win but one thing missing that was left behind, superstar quarterback tom brady's game jersey, and gio benitez is in boston with the latest on that. good morning, gio. >> reporter: hey, michael, good morning to you. we are hours away from that big victory parade. in fact, fans will be packing in right behind me here but right now this morning there is a big headline making news, where is that jersey. the internet has given it a
name, jerseygate. >> i put it in my bag. i absolutely 100% put it in my bag. >> reporter: with a fifth super bowl ring now in his possession, this morning houston police, nfl security, state police and local law enforcement officials are all joining forces trying to help four-time mvp tom brady locate another accessory. >> did someone take my jersey? >> reporter: number 12 seen rifling through his equipment bag -- >> brady has his fifth! >> reporter: -- moments after that record-breaking game. >> i put it in here, man. it was just -- >> reporter: the jersey nowhere to be seen. >> want a cigar, tommy? >> you gotta look online. >> reporter: they say his shirt and pads were removed from the field before the trophy ceremony, an equipment manager initially thinking he had safely locked them up but apparently not the case. >> the jersey, yeah, put it in my bag and then i came out and it wasn't there anymore.
>> reporter: the state's lieutenant governor even calling on the texas rangers for help. so, what's the big deal? well, some experts say the jersey could be bring in $500,000 but others say -- >> it basically has zero value. anyone that sees this jersey is going to know that's the stolen jersey. the only thing they can do is send it in an unmarked envelope and return it to boston and say, sorry. >> reporter: but the qb knows there are more important things in life, posting these pics of his family after the game paying tribute to his mom who patriots owner robert kraft says has been going through chemotherapy and radiation. >> she's been through a lot. way harder than what i went through last night. way harder than what our team went through last night. she hadn't been to a game all year so what a hell of a game for her to be at. >> reporter: and we should tell you brady says his mother's prognosis is good. but she is still fighting and we certainly hope she gets better. meanwhile, remember, the lieutenant governor enlisted the help of the texas rangers
to help find that jersey. the other texas rangers responded, the baseball team. they sent out this tweet, this is a bit out of our job description, but we'll see what we can do. guys, back to you. >> got a little mixed up with the rangers. >> a lot goes on in the locker room. >> so much chaos especially after a game like that. you don't know who is in and out. there are no cameras in there. very easy to tuck a jersey in a backpack. under your coat. who knows. >> who knows. >> what do we know about the weather for this big parade? >> you saw gio standing there. he was dry. that is not going to be the case for the parade. it doesn't look great. the rain moving in and actually snow. we have winter weather advisories that stretch from new england back through even north dakota. some of the freezing rain advisories start in connecticut and go to the north and east, not going to be a pretty late morning, early afternoon but very much like boston is used to. we stopped it right there just as the parade is kind of coming to an end. 11:00 a.m. to 12:00, rain to
snow with a little breeze. good morning, i'm abc 7 news meteorologist mike nico. look at the wind whipped rain at the bay bridge toll plaza. we've had gusted up to 50 miles per hour. another storm for thursday and friday. not as strong. the storm is still three on our impact scale. flooding in the north bay and rock slides in the santa cruz mountains. still, moderate to high for the rest of us.

surveillance video just moments before her death. >> this case is very similar to a needle in a haystack. >> reporter: police say they chased 250 tips and analyzed more than 600 dna samples but more than six months after the crime, still nothing. then a hunch. lt. john russo remembering a suspicious person he'd seen in the area. pouring over old complaints they found a single 911 call about the same man made in the spring. once they had his name, they discovered three citations, all tying lewis to that area. >> these things take time. difficult cases but you don't stop. there's a resilience here and vigilance here every day and that's what solved the case. >> reporter: police tracking lewis to his mother's house where he lived 3 1/2 miles from the crime scene. when they visited him there, police say he voluntarily gave them a dna sample, a cheek swab, which they say turned out to be a match. lewis later reportedly confessing, saying on the day of
the attack he left home angry about something that happened with his family, wandered into the park, and when he saw vetrano, he, quote, lost it, violently lashing out, an apparently random attack. >> demon! he's a demon! >> reporter: at the arraignment, vetrano's family shouting angrily at the suspect. >> now we're learning more about lewis. he had no prior arrests and went to a school for students with special needs. and this morning, his family saying he's being set up because he's black. >> the cops frame him. he is not a killer. he is not a violent person. >> reporter: in a statement to abc news lewis' attorney says we caution everyone not to rush to immediate judgment. mr. lewis is entitled to fairness and due process. lewis has not yet entered a plea. police say vetrano was also sexually assaulted, but lewis has not been charged with that. that is going before a grand jury. robin? >> it is, mara. thank you. for more let's bring in sunny losten, our senior legal correspondent.
so, you're a former prosecutor. >> yeah. >> when you first heard about this arrest, what did you think? you spent a lot of time in looking into this. >> yeah, i mean i was thrilled for the victim's family. i think as a former law enforcement officer, you always are. but the profile was odd to me. someone with no prior arrest, no history of violence. didn't know the victim beforehand. it really would be like finding a needle in a haystack. it just didn't quite make sense. i was surprised by the arrest. >> the suspect voluntarily gave a dna sample. supposedly two taped confessions but you say this could be potentially a problem with those. >> i'm troubled by that especially given his background. a special needs student. again, someone without a prior criminal history, no attorney present. no guardian present. the voluntariness of those actions is going to be immediately at issue and without the dna, without the confessions, no case and so i think we have to think about protecting the integrity of the system and i'm, again, a little bit unclear as to whether or not
those pieces of evidence are going to come in. >> why did they allow the perp walk like that? >> we were talking about this before. i did not allow those in my cases. i think it makes it very difficult for the prosecution because what if you have the wrong guy? you're innocent until proven guilty. you also poison the well for the potential jurors. everybody sees this guy in handcuffs. if that is not the guy, you've compromised your jury system and you've compromised your case. >> it's no surprise that the family is saying, look, this is not our kid. he is just -- of course you would expect a family to say that. and they brought in the racial implications. how do you evaluate statements like that when you're investigating? >> listen, families always say that oh, my goodness, my kid could never do this but we are talking about howard beach here, a history of racial animus, only 1% african-american. this suspect didn't live in the area and so it sort of reminds
me of the central park five, and reminds me of "making a murderer", so we have to not rush to judgment here. >> let's hope we don't do that. if they do, i know the family, they want to make sure they have the right person. >> absolutely. >> everybody does. sunny, see you on "the view" today. >> thank you. coming up, robin, new concerns about off-road vehicles after britney spears' niece is hospitalized. and prince william's powerful words about when to admit you feel overwhelmed. the speech getting a lot of reaction this morning. to admit you feel overwhelmed. the speech getting a lot of reaction this morning.

we are back with those new concerns about off-road vehicles after britney spears' 8-year we are back with those new concerns about off-road vehicles after britney spears' 8-year-old niece was seriously injured in an accident. she is now in critical condition. linzie here with the story. good morning, linzie. >> good morning, george. off-road vehicles are incredibly popular in america with hundreds of thousands sold every year. but safety experts say this accident is yet another example of how dangerous they can be. this morning, britney spears is asking for wishes and prayers for her 8-year-old niece maddie aldridge. police say aldridge, the
daughter of jamie lynn spears, is in critical but stable condition after getting into an accident in an off-road video, believed to be the one in this video, given to her on her 7th birthday. >> oh, my god! >> reporter: local authorities say she was driving alone when it flipped over and became submerged on a pond on the family's louisiana proper and say within seconds her mother jamie lynn, stepfather and other family members jumped in the water to rescue her, but she was trapped by a seatbelt and the vehicle's safety netting. ambulance workers arrived within two minutes freeing the little girl and rushing her to the hospital. a spears family representative tells abc news the family appreciates all the prayers and support for their family. aldridge is believed to have been in a polaris off-road vehicle like this one, an rzr-170. the instruction manual reads never allow a child under the age of 10 to operate or ride as a passenger in this vehicle. but it also goes on to say it is up to the parent to make the final determination.
a spokesperson for polaris told abc news we do not want to speculate about the accident and what vehicle could have been involved. safety experts say these vehicles can still be dangerous. >> the danger of a child driving in an off-highway vehicle is that they don't have the experience to handle these vehicles and sometimes the vehicles are very heavy and difficult to control. >> reporter: in 2015 alone, there were over 350 off-road vehicle fatalities. six-time olympic gold medallist swimmer, amy van dyken-rouen, severed her spine in a 2014 accident on an atv. another popular type of off-road vehicle. >> my doctor said i'm giving you an 80% chance to live. i need you to say good-bye to your husband. >> reporter: she says laws are needed to keep people safe. well, the off-highway vehicle and atv industries have voluntary standards which the consumer product safety commission say are too weak. if you're going to operate any
of these vehicles, safety experts say take a training course first, and safety experts say a child should never operate an adult atv. >> that makes sense. okay, linzie, thanks very much. to michael. coming up on our big board, new hospital or safety concerns after a woman fakes her way into an operating room. and david beckham backlash. the leaked e-mails causing him a major headache. we'll talk about those things when we come back in two minutes. minutes. eyes open? say hi to xiidra, lifitegrast ophthalmic solution. the first eye drop approved for the signs and symptoms of dry eye. one drop in each eye, twice a day. common side effects include eye irritation, discomfort or blurred vision when applied to the eye, and an unusual taste sensation. do not touch the container tip to your eye or any surface. remove contacts before using xiidra and wait for at least 15 minutes before reinserting them. if you have dry eyes, ask your doctor about xiidra.

this piece is so you. i saw it and i was just like "oh, i have to have it..." state farm knows that every one those moments, there's one of these... this piece is so you. i saw it and i was just like "i have to have it..." from renters insurance... ...to rewards credit cards, state farm is here to help life go right. you know you missed the big board when you were in houston. you know you missed the big board when you were in houston. >> i missed all of you. >> we missed you but the big board is back and so is dr. jen ashton at the table with us for our first story and it's very interesting because we're going to start with hospital safety concerns after a woman allegedly pretending to be a doctor in training faked her way into boston's brigham and women's hospital following doctors on patient rounds and even into the o.r. you have been in an operating room, of course. >> yep. >> tell us a little bit about
how this could possibly happen. >> if i take you inside let's say a typical floor plan of a surgical suite or operating room, think of it like a labyrinth. there's outer layers, there's inner layers. typically if you look at the green as the o.r., there are multiple security checkpoints if you will marked in red where we have to show our i.d., flash it against a card tron in order to get in but we kind of assume if you're in the o.r., that you have a right to be there. i've seen this happen, not often but trust me, if it can happen at the brigham which is one of the best hospitals in the country, it can happen anywhere. >> this woman has not been charged by police. >> right. >> but she's also not the first person to trail these students or doctors into the o.r. you've seen this before, right? >> i actually hadn't heard of this practice. it's this practice of tailgating where the first person in a long line that gets to that card tron swipes his or her badge and then holds the door open for the people behind us. this challenges our basic manners, right. you don't slam a door for the
person behind you. you hold it open and also challenges our habits. are we going to turn around and say i'm sorry, can i see your i.d.? i have been asked by my i.d. badge in my hospital and i've been on staff for 12 years but does it happen all the time when someone is holding a door, probably not. >> even when you're tailgating at a game, if somebody is eating, they belong there. >> i know you would take it back to that kind of tailgate. >> sorry. >> there's some people that hear this and go, okay, but they're a little concerned. can you ease their concerns? >> 100% and i think this case really speaks to that. there were multiple people at the brigham who noticed this woman, thought something looked odd and reported her. it speaks to the vigilance of nurses and doctors, if we see something out of place we'll speak up. >> that's right. >> thank you, doc. next up, david beckham is facing backlash after leaked e-mails show the retired soccer star was upset about not being knighted by the queen. nick watt is joining us now, and nick, fill us in on the details, my man.
>> reporter: well, michael, in a series of hacked e-mails between beckham and his pr agent, it seems he is just desperate to be sir david and was livid when the committee turned him down over a legal but frowned upon tax efficiency issue. unappreciative blanks, that's a blank for a swear word, beckham called him in one e-mail written on a gold plated laptop we just discovered he owned. some are suggesting that beckham does charity work largely to get the knighthood. he represents unicef but was allegedly furious when someone suggested he also donate cash. apparently writing, the blanking money is mine. >> so what is beckham and his team saying about the release of these e-mails? >> reporter: unicef is standing by their man saying he did actually give his own cash and team beckham is saying, he was, indeed, extremely disappointed not to be dubbed sir dave, but
that some swear words were inserted into those hacked e-mails. they're saying quotes were taken out of context and that it's all a few years ago anyway. the e-mails were hacked in 2015, someone tried to blackmail beckham over a million bucks not to leak them. he refused. won a court order. they were published anyway in europe. >> and he has a really good image around the world and that's helped him rake in a lot of money with endorsements. do you think this could hurt his endorsements? >> reporter: i mean, brand beckham is based on his looks and based on the fact that he gets better looking as he gets older but mostly on his mr. nice guy image and now that is a little shaken. he's got a lot to lose. he is the second highest earned retired athlete in the planet behind michael jordan, 65 million bucks last year. >> you said michael jordan, not michael strahan. michael jordan. >> i'm a working stiff over here. don't put me in that -- 65. i may take one off-season and retire after that.

we're going that talk about lady gaga's fits in secrets. the star rocked the super bowl halftime show and i got a chance to speak with her about how she's getting in shape or how she got in shape before that big performance and, paula, you have more on her workout. >> looks like you might have taken a page. you're looking great. lady gaga has said she does not believe in lip-syncing so, yeah, she was singing, she was dancing simultaneously during that epic super bowl performance but, michael, how did she build up the stamina? by talking and singing during her workouts. lady gaga displaying incredible acts of athleticism with twists and turns wowing the world with her nonstop routine. ♪ for the last several months the star tirelessly working on both her body and vocals at the same time. sharing her routine on social media from morning yoga to late
night ab exercises. her trainer even posting this photo of her pregame warm-up using trx straps. ♪ i'm beautiful >> reporter: her workout arsenal pushing her performance and stamina on the stage giving her the strength to hit those notes and just dance. ♪ >> susane pata is a group fitness instructor from crunch and she's going to show us how to train like a star. welcome, susane. >> thank you. >> we've seen lady gaga. she is singing while doing her cardio. demi low separate vato is singin the treadmill so are -- do they help and is it something we can do? >> they do help and you can do it yourself. when you're singing you're projecting so you almost are forced into this upright posture and as you're singing you're activating your core and getting stronger. it's like planking but more fun because you're singing and anybody can do it. you don't have to be a great
singer. if you find yourself alone and belt out a tune, you'll get stronger. >> alone is key. i don't want to be at the gym and you're singing. >> you can go running with friends and talk to them but i'm usually passed out. i can't talk anymore. >> that's a good point. running and talking to your friends. we saw lady gaga with the trx bands warming up before her performance. what exactly was she doing? >> lady gaga is impressive. she looks to me she was doing a trx row. >> you're a master instructor at this. >> i am, yes, so the trx row is basically you're using your body weight and lean back and start moving the body by squeezing the shoulder blades and releasing. want to make it tougher, step forward and it's a little tougher because you're using more body weight. >> my husband ordered these straps. they came in the mail. i wasn't sure what they were for and i was relieved when he put them in the gym. i had no idea. like this. >> yeah. >> oh, boy. >> trx bands. >> i don't even know what to say. but i'm glad that's what this is for. >> got to keep it spicy. >> that's it. exactly.
>> and gaga told me she uses the versa climber and she sings while she's on the versa climber. >> that's amazing. >> everybody doesn't have a versa climber. it's not a cheap piece of equipment. what can you do to get the same results? >> if you don't have one you can mimic the movement, not replicate it but mimic the movement down on the ground. so the versa climber, you have one arm moving and the other leg and you're moving cont contralaterally. and if you want to make it tougher, add elastic bands or put towels underneath so you can add on more complexity. >> susane, great job. paula, great job. fly to new york city, stay in a hotel, get $500 spending cash and see one of music's hottest acts performing live on "gma." well, just go to goodmorningamerica.com to find out how to enter.

they're being interviewed. so you're probably learning a lot. >> yes and no. there's always a couple lines that are always kind of interesting, but for the most part it's not like, oh, my god, i didn't know who this person was. why, is there someone who -- >> no, we really got you stressed. why don't we catch everybody up with what happened last night. because it was a lot. >> uh-huh. >> reporter: it was one of the most dramatic episodes in bachelor history. >> i just feel like it might be time and best time to say good-bye. >> reporter: nick sending home not one -- >> i wish nothing but the best for you. >> reporter: not two. >> i'm sorry and i hope i'm not screwing this all up. >> reporter: but three women with no warning and no rose ceremony. jasmine melting down on the group date. whitney left behind on the two-on-one and danielle l. sent home after admitting she's falling in love, all before the rose ceremony where three more women were sent home. >> i want to be honest and real with you guys. >> reporter: an emotional roller coaster for the bachelor himself. and losing hope finding the
right one. >> right now i just feel like terrified that it's not going to happen. so, i don't know if i can keep doing this. >> i need to get out of here. >> he's gone. >> no. >> reporter: bachelor nation shocked by nick's choices. no one more surprised than these fans. >> i don't think i've ever seen an episode where literally every single girl goes to a separate part of the island to cry. >> nick flying into new york city monday night and surprising one of the most intense watch parties in the city. >> what up, guys? >> reporter: and our own bachelor super fan ginger was there for the big moment. >> can you explain why everyone cried at the volleyball game? >> in separate areas. >> yeah. >> i mean, you kind of saw it a little bit. at that point -- >> shots were fired.

[ cheers and applause ] >> and, you know, as we can see, this show, it really is an emotional roller coaster for you. we see tears. we see all those things. you have 30 women. you have to be vulnerable to those 30 but you're also vulnerable to america. is that intimidating at all? >> yes and no. i mean, the idea of it like when you talk about it, it's like, wow, that is -- >> you just block it out. >> in the moment you really don't think about it and are trying to focus on the women in front of you and you're trying to focus on those relationships and the last thing you're thinking about is someone is going to watch this which i think is important because if you're doing that it's hard to really be yourself. it's really hard to make decisions that really could potentially affect the rest of your life. so, the last thing you need to be thinking about is stuff like that. >> well, it's got to be tough to psych yourself up for all of those dates, but we have
discovered some video of how we believe that you do just that. can we roll that video? ♪ >> yeah. that actually is before a date. ♪ i don't need you anymore ♪ i don't need you anymore ♪ oh >> wow. >> does anyone else not love cher? >> no. see, that's why we love you. no, the answer is no, 100%. >> you're open, man, you're open to the world. you know, you surprised the ladies at last night's watch party. so, we got a little surprise for you too, my friend. >> that makes me nervous. >> first up, we first met this person in 2003, and now he's living happily ever after with three kids. do you see anyone in the audience that sounds like this? >> am i supposed to look now? >> yeah. >> who sounds like that, like that would be him, three --
